U.S. approves $330 million in arms deals for Israel

The U.S. government on Tuesday said it had approved up to $330 million in three separate arms deals for Israel, and sources tracking a much bigger deal for 25 Lockheed Martin Corp F-35 fighter jets said that agreement could be approved later this month.

"There is strong administration support for selling F-35s to Israel, however the government will need to determine which items are included in the Israeli version since the technology is very sensitive," said Thompson.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has had a really bad track record in terms of selling sophisticated and proprietary US weapons technology to countries which are not at all friendly to the US.
